You can buy prepared simple syrup for this recipe, but it's easy enough to make it yourself. Here's how!
- 1 1/2 cups white rum
- 1/2 to 3/4 cup fresh-squeezed lime juice, from about 6 juicy limes
- 1/4 to 1/3 cup simple syrup, depending on your preferred sweetness
- 1 16-ounce package frozen strawberries
- 4 cups ice cubes
- Strawberries, lime wheels, or little umbrellas for garnish (optional)
1 Place the rum, 1/2 cup of the lime juice, 1/4 cup of the simple syrup, strawberries, and ice cubes into a blender and pulse until completely blended with a slushy consistency.
2 Check the consistency and flavor. Add more lime juice for more tartness or more simple syrup to sweeten, if needed. You may also want more ice to make it slushier in consistency. A daiquiri is not an exact science, so adjust as you see fit.
3 Divide the daiquiris between glasses. Garnish and serve.
